Project Hope

About

Project Hope is a network of students who are passionate about public health and interested in getting involved with organizations that stand in solidarity with Boston communities. Our members gain an understanding of Boston’s historical, economic, political, and social characteristics and how these characteristics influence health outcomes. By engaging with community partners around Boston, Project Hope fosters a community for students interested in the link between social justice and healthcare.

Project Hope provides a number of volunteer opportunities for students from one-time events or weekly commitments to immersive internship opportunities. 

This year, Project Hope’s community partnerships and educational opportunities fall into three focus areas: 1) Combating the drug and opioid epidemic in Boston 2) Alleviating the link between poverty and sickness 3) Promoting health care equity and justice for every community.

Mission

Through service and self-reflection, students will discover the connections between socioeconomic status and health. We will consider the role of volunteerism and how to instigate productive advocacy and forward action for public health issues. By volunteering with Project Hope, students will stand in solidarity with underserved or vulnerable members of our collective Greater Boston community.  

Time Commitment

2-7 hours per week for a semester.
